D/P/I – MN.ROYPosted: October 28, 2014
If Los Angeles based glitch neophyte Alex Grains gains some momentum with his D/P/I vehicle – or at least gains some followers in the same vein, then the year 2015 might be a witness to the re-birth of glitch. Or its revival, whatever you want to call it. The newest release from Gray, MN.ROY is as fractured yet strangely melodic as the sort of super-precise, austere glitch concrete can be. The Leaving Records resident and chanceimag.es label honcho crafts an ambient-informed version of frenetic click and cut patchwork emerging and hiding in the hyper-futuristic ooze ocasionally shaken up by a cluster of sudden beats or a deep bass wave. Actually, when it comes to ADHD sound collages MN.ROY might be, together with Giant Claw’s Dark Web, the best interpretation of the cultural overproduction and hyper-acceleration of the Intertnet these days. Highly recommended!
